How do you leave behind everything you know to become the person you really are? A journey from one home to another. Funny, honest, and uncensored.
The Cunning Linguist tells the story of Monica, a Mexican girl that realizes at a young age that she is a lesbian.
Believing that God made her this way, she is happy to be one, but her father makes it clear that it’s wrong to be who she is. Thanks to a TV show, Monica decides to move to Toronto, where she begins to learn about sex and freedom. With God by her side as an unlikely sidekick, Monica relearns how to be herself, without betraying who she was.
Created with support from the Emerging Creators Unit at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre and the funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario.
